Famous Mahatma Gandhi Quote Found In Key West

8342216786_98c035694a_bYes, it’s 100% true! If you look hard enough in Key West you can find a tiled mosaic quote of former Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi.

Here’s today’s brush-up on history: 🙂 Born Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi lived from October 2, 1869 to January 30, 1948 when he was shot down by an assassin’s bullet. Known as Mahatma or Bapu (Father of Nation), was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India employing non-violent civil disobedience towards their independence.

Most sources, and I repeat most sources credit Mahatma Gandhi with the saying: “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”. Those words are tiled into a circular wall around a covered picnic table area seen above.

You can find Mahatma Gandhi’s famous quote at Key West High School’s open-air area only feet away from the main office on Flagler Avenue. Please be mindful that this is a school by timing your visit after normal school hours or on weekends.
